Antin’s clients are corporate entities and as such are not individuals (“data subjects”). However, in providing the Services to our clients we may receive and process personal data about certain individuals in connection with the provision of those Services. For example, part of the subscription process requires our clients to complete a set of subscription documents, which requires disclosure of certain employee names and contact details. We also require lists of authorised signatories as well as certified copies of the passports of those signatories and proof of their address. We also maintain a client database, which includes names, email addresses and telephone numbers of individuals.  

  • If you are an individual whose personal data may be processed by us as a result of our provision of the Services to others

We may process a variety of different personal data depending on the Services being provided.

For example, we correspond with our clients’ employees on a day-to-day basis in providing our Services.
